Posted on 2011-09-25
I need to join a Windows server 2008 currently a member of Work group in our data center to my domain. We have a site-2-site vpn tunnel. I can ping the server from my domain controller and the server in work group can ping the domain controller. When I try to join the server in the work group I am receiving this message:

The error was: "This operation returned because the timeout period expired."
(error code 0x000005B4 ERROR_TIMEOUT)
The query was for the SRV record for _ldap._tcp.dc._msdcs.xxxx.local
